Pumpkin Raffle 2018PUMPKIN RAFFLE

During the last week of October, we raffle off pumpkins which have been decorated by staff members.  Students can purchase raffle tickets for 25 cents each, and throw their tickets in for whichever pumpkin(s) they like the best.  Winners are announced on Friday, and pumpkins are taken home that afternoon.

This year our Book Fair will be November 7th-8th.  We will have a Family Night from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, November 8th.  All earnings from the Book Fair go toward the Library/Learning Center.



At least once a year we put on dances or Family Fun Nights.  These events are the talk of the school, and feature dancing in one half of the gym and activities/food in the other half.  Admission is free but we do sell tickets which you can use for the food & activities!

This one is not a large fundraiser…the major reason we put this on is because the kids love it so much.  In the months leading up to the event, parents/guardians and community members can donate items in the front office (chotchkies, household items, most any non-clothing item you’re ready to part with that still has a bit of life in it.)  The PTO will organize and stage these items, and on a Monday in the beginning of December, every class will get a chance to come through and purchase items to give to their family & friends on Christmas.  All of the items are priced very low, starting at 25 cents and moving up to $2.00 for the most expensive things.  This way every single student can come away with presents for their loved ones.



Every Spring, we sell tickets for our Smith Smackeroos raffle.  The raffle features cash prizes for those whose tickets are drawn, and special prizes for students who sell winning tickets.  It is our biggest fundraiser of the year!  We’ll have more information up on the specifics of this year’s raffle as it draws closer.
